Quota based on Transportation lane in SNP Heuristics

Hi All,

We are in SCM 5.0 and are planning to use SNP Heuristic only (no Optimizer).

A particular location A can receive from a source location B by two means of transport Air and Sea. The lead times are 5 days and 60 days respectively. We want to supply 40% by Air and 60% by Sea. We have created two transport lanes between A and B and are able to maintain these percentages as Quotas.

What are the steps, if any, so that SNP Heuristic run can propogate the demand at location A based on these quota to location B? That is, we want the requirement of A to be split into two based on the lead times.

Thanks in advance.

    >Hi Govindarajan ,

    First of all let me clear the points as :

    1.You can not define a quota in the transport lane for the demand propagation from only one Destination to one source location,

    2. neither define quota with respect to MOT and This has no meaning because the whole demand is anyway going to acuumalate at that one location only

    3.You can not define more than one Transportation Lanes for same Source and Destibnation Location.

    4.If more than one Means of Transport are defined for a transportation lane, the system chooses the means of transport with the lowest costs and if costs are not maintained the shortest duration meams of Tranport is selected (But no control on the Qty i.e.%)

    but if you define a lower cost for one MOT whom you want 60% all the deploy orders will be assigned to that low cost MOT only as heuristic considers no capacity constraints hence cannot restrict upto 60% for sea and 40% for air

    But this deployment % of total by sea and % of total by air can be roughly controlled atTLB level where you can select the alterbate MOT and manually enter the qty for this MOT

    Pls go thro' the documentation on

    I think you must think about creating two virtual locations. VIRTUAL_SEA and VIRTUAL_AIR. Then establish the quota arranges for A=> these virtual locations.


    -Thanks for rewarding points if this is helpful
